69. castro at 65. 71 degrees in santa rosa, also in oakland and danville, high of 72 degrees. going through the forecast this weekend, we're getting ready for some rain. looks like a great weekend all around because by the end of the weekend we'll start to see showers moving in and the timing brings it in early sunday morning and then it continues on across the bay moving off towards the south and east. that's round one. then round two moves through in time for the morning commute. you may want to keep that in the plan, you may have to set the clock a little earlier because things may be a slow go on the roads. the rainfall estimates have been going back and forth maybe a quarter inch for most of us and heading to the sierra, the snow moves to the east and the possibility of snowfall totals of over 4,000 feet at 1 to 2 inches so a light coating there and higher elevations expecting more snow, up to 9 inches.

as you head down the mountains to the lower elevations, we're looking at still some slippery travel conditions, especially into monday. today we're looking at 70 degrees and east bay 71 degrees and our temperatures going down as you head through each day. the coolest day will be on sunday if you're traveling across the state, once again the snow begins on sunday if you want to get there ahead of the snow and then just kind of stay inside or go skiing as the snow is coming down, that will happen on monday. heading down to l.a., it will be 73 degrees and up to redding, 62 degrees there. this is for tomorrow. and we'll also have that chance of some snow showers in the sierra, warm temperatures for southern california and then turning a little bit cooler as we head into sunday. chris? >> it's nice to feel a little cooler finally. we'll be right back.

>> scary. this one not comfortable canine is hanging there, really holding on for dear life. recently tweeted out that picture of the repelling drill. talk about bonding with your best friend. he hangs on to his handler with his paws wrapped around his leg. he was just fine, safely harnessed in, maybe just a little afraid of heights but they had to practice him repelling down and handling dealing with it too and he did get a lot of treats afterward. >> you know he can hang on if he need to get up to the top of the mountain and need the dog with you, you don't have to carry him. >> he looked really sad, didn't he? glad to say they are all okay. >> thanks for joining us. you can get the latest information any time of day, nbcbayarea.com and glad carrie's forecast means we can cook in the kitchen.
